Program overview

To meet the growing demands of the accounting field, our program encompasses a wide range of curricular and extracurricular components, emphasizing the demands of a complex professional environment. The curriculum focuses on integrating technology, globalization and ethics, preparing you for success in our global economy. A unique benefit of our accounting program is that you can combine our undergraduate work with our innovative MPAcc program, a beneficial option if you wish to complete the 150-hour CPA exam requirement of most states. As a full-time student, you will be able to complete the combined degree program in five years or less, or with careful planning in four years. Modifications to this program allow you to pursue a second undergraduate major or minor without increasing total degree requirements. Double majors or minors in entrepreneurship, finance, international business, management information systems and operations management are especially popular. The School of Business Administration’s undergraduate and graduate programs, including the undergraduate accounting program, are accredited by AACSB International — The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business.

Career opportunities

There exists today a wide range of job opportunities in the field of accounting. Entry-level jobs are dependent on the extent of your education. Positions of bookkeeper and accounting clerk, for example, require a high school diploma and perhaps a two-year associate degree in accounting. The position of accountant demands that you have a more thorough understanding of financial concepts and requires a minimum of a four-year bachelor's degree in accounting. Some accountants go on to become certified public accountants, or CPAs, as this opens up additional job opportunities for them. To become a CPA, you will need to earn college credits over and above your accounting major, gain some work experience, and, most importantly, you will need to pass the CPA Exam.
